The body of a woman found in Anderby Creek last month is believed to be missing Bicker woman Diane Tytheridge.
The body was found in dunes on September 15.
Diane (61) was last seen in the Skegness area on June 25, after catching a bus from Boston Police Station.
Diane left her home in Bicker that morning to go to work at Pilgrim Hospital.
She never arrived and her car was later found in Pescod Square car park.
She was later seen on CCTV wandering around Boston before catching a bus to Skegness.
Her family, some of which lived in Australia, had appealed for information regarding her whereabouts.
The news was met on social media by many posts by friends and those who knew her in her professional capacity.
